Unlike with BlackBerry 6 and the release of the BlackBerry Torch, Research in Motion has just ensured that, at least a few apps are available for the BlackBerry PlayBook once the device is released. We told you yesterday that RIM would be at Adobe Max 2010 in a big way… Well, they are making big news while there. RIM co-CEO, Mike Lazaridus, has announced that every developer that gets an Adobe Air for Playbook App accepted into BlackBerry App World will get a free BlackBerry PlayBook!
For you developers that just became interested (literally) in developing for the BlackBerry PlayBook, can download the BlackBerry PlayBook SDK and simulators via the links below…
- Download the BlackBerry Tablet OS SDK Beta for Adobe® AIR: SDK for Windows®
- Download the BlackBerry Tablet OS SDK Beta for Adobe® AIR: SDK for Mac
- Download the BlackBerry® PlayBook™ Simulator Beta: simulator for Windows
- Download the BlackBerry® PlayBook™ Simulator Beta: simulator for Mac
Careful…that isn’t what Laz said. He said would be “eligible” to get one for free, not “will” get one for free.
